The 11 Best Songs By Revenge

I wonder if the music industry is purposely trying to shoot itself in the foot or they're really just the biggest morons this side of the government.  It's like they're making a bigger effort to fail than to succeed.

This past week, Soundgarden sold 1 million plus copies of their newest hits compilation, Telephantasm.  Only it was packaged with Guitar Hero.  Therefore, Billboard disqualified all those GH sales from Soundgarden's official sales number.  Instead having a well-deserved comeback #1 on the billboard charts, they sink to #24.  In a digital age, SG found a way to push CDs. one can do.  Yet, they did it.  And instead of rewarding them and ushering in a new era of creative sales, the industry wants to bury this brilliant move...and their own careers along with it.

I don't think it's any surprise that I just found out that Freebass (the uber supergroup featuring Peter Hook of New Order, Mani of the Stone Roses, and for a moment Andy Rourke of the Smiths) was released two weeks ago.  Who has the time to promote an album made-up of influential artists when you need to put all your effort into selling pop music's newest crap fest?

Here's Peter Hook's other solo band Revenge...and a look back.

Here are the 11 Best Songs By Revenge:

1.  Big Bang (One True Passion)
2.  Little Pig (Gun World Porn EP)
3.  Slave (One True Passion)
